Elderly woman escapes with 5-sovereign chain from jewellery in Pollachi

Covai Post Network

An elderly woman, posing as a customer at a jewellery shop here yesterday, escaped with a 5-sovereign gold chain.

According to police, an elderly woman, aged above 50 years, visited Sri Kumaran Jewellers at SS Kovil Street in Pollachi and asked the jeweller to show her gold chains weighing 7 sovereigns. But, the jeweller showed her a chain weighing only 5 sovereigns. The elderly woman cleverly took it left the store. The shop owner later realised that the chain was missing and identified the woman based on cctv footages.

Pollachi Town police registered a case and were on the hunt.
